Salamander Designs was born from an idea developed by Salvatore Carrabba in the early 1990s. Searching for appropriate furniture to support and display his home entertainment components, he discovered there was nothing in the marketplace that met his requirements. He desired furniture of the highest quality that could be configured to meet his current needs, but flexible enough to accommodate his entertainment system as it changed over time.
Sal decided to apply his background in sculpture and design to create some furniture on his own, and the Archetype System of shelving was born. In 1992 Sal founded Salamander Designs, Ltd. Since then it has become a leader in the consumer electronics furniture marketplace, offering advance flexible solutions for audio and video enthusiasts.
